Welcome to the OSU Research Forests!

The OSU Research Forests were donated to the College of Forestry to serve as a living laboratory and outdoor classroom for students, researchers and managers to learn about forest ecosystems and management. OSU utilizes the Research Forests to find new ways to sustainably manage forests for conservation, education, business, and recreation.

Our forests proudly serve as a refuge for the community to connect with nature, learn about our ecosystems, and enjoy favorite outdoor activities. All operations on the forests – including recreation and trails – are self-funded through timber harvests.

Trailheads can get congested, so check out this webpage for tips in planning your next trip to the Research Forests!
